Recently, Zalonku Glam Team had a chance to get a balayage transformation from the newest Japanese salon in town: Ciel Sowal Salon. Founded in 2016 by Goto Kazuya, Ciel Sowal is best known for its high quality hair coloring services at affordable prices. It is one of the most favorite Japanese salons in Jakarta, especially among Japanese community in town.

According to Mari-san from Ciel Sowal, this salon specializes in hair treatments such as Japanese hair coloring, haircut, hair perm, and wave. They have are three professional hair stylists who are ready to transform your crown at Ciel Sowal: Mari-san, Mr Dedeh, and Mr Nafis.




When we entered Ciel Sowal, there were three things that captured our eyes: the simple yet cozy interior, the cleanliness, and the spacey room. A free welcome drink is offered to every client who comes the salon. We love the exclusivity and comfort this cozy salon provides.




Adisha from Zalonku had a chance to try Ciel Sowal’s balayage coloring. She was greeted by Mr Nafis, a professional hair stylist with over 20 years of experience in the beauty world, specifically in hair coloring. Adisha created an ombre look about four months ago, and we were sure that her balayage transformation would be amazing!




Ciel Sowal salon uses Japanese products like Milbon and Shisheido, as well as other high quality brands including Keune. It was quite a challenge to transform Adisha’s ombre hair. Mr Nafis started with a blend of Ash Grape and Violet from Milbon, which resulted in a dark brown shade, followed by Keune 3001 (blonde) for the lower ends. This color combination created a smooth color transition from dark to light shade on the lower part of Adisha’s hair.


Balayage (sweeping) technique was used to distribute the color evenly. To ensure that the balayage colors ‘pop’ beautifully, Mr Nafis repeated the entire coloring process three times. He also answered and explained our questions about hair coloring patiently. Lucky for us, the four hours of coloring passed by very quickly!


The balayage coloring ended with a wash and light massage. Before blow-drying, Mr Nafis cut the ends of Adisha’s hair to ensure a smooth final look. Overall, Adisha was happy with the transformation! The color really suits her light skin tone. And yes, we agreed that Ciel Sowal has high quality service and products!

If you want to get a hair balayage transformation like Adisha’s, make sure you make an appointment first at Ciel Sowal, as the salon is always fully booked especially on the weekends. Adisha’s balayage coloring starts at IDR. 1,000,000.
